yorp127 :  lots of contractions and back labour.  Sometimes I would even have regular contractions for an hour or 2, then it would stop.  With my second I was 6cm dialated for a few days before labour actually got going.  My midwife said I was in labour, my uterus just didn’t know it, lol.  Acupuncture really helped me.  I did it for my last 2.  And both times it worked for me.  🙂

yorp127 :  It was horribly frustrating really.  Now I can laugh but at the time I started to think she would never come out.  I was 41+4 when she finally came.

due to my pregnancy being IVF, i needed to go for Non Stress tests (NST).  at my first NST at 36+4, i was hooked up to a monitor and the tech comes in and asks me how long i was having contractions.  i’m not, i told her.  well you are having one right now.  oh those, i’ve been having those for weeks.

and the day before i had asked someone what braxton hicks felt like.  what i was feeling was nothing like what was described.

i was 1cm and was admitted then induced the next day. i probably would have been sent home, except DS’s heart rate was decling during some of the longer contractions.

so i don’t know if i was considered early labor, but i had no idea i was having contractions.
